And my niece that is 10 is with us on vacation just had her first period WHEW. So thankful the wife is here. My poor BIL has been dealing with everything since my sister passed in November and now this. We'll get my niece squared away no worries but now it's basically as if she's our second child, that happens to be 10 lol, so quite a process. I know my BIL is thankful cause he's a deer in the lights with everything, my sister did basically everything up until the day she left us

It's pretty damn surreal when your little girl starts maturing.

I noticed a few weeks ago she as developing and needed some more upper clothing considerations.

Like...you were just a baby a few days ago right?

New dentist.

They are surfer themed, have saltwater tanks, tvs in ceiling playing Disney movies, headphones, etc.

Pretty cool. When I was a kid it was like our last office, old stuffy and not cool at all.

Well, first real fever two years into it. Just as we are about to start daycare.

First reading 102.5. Kiddo is a trooper and happy and holding up so far, and advil has it down to 100.5 already. But there is a little cough so potentially something serious.

:hsd:

Wow. Two years until a real fever. Good luck. I hope it's just a cold.

But, buckle up. Daycare/school is going to be an adventure of "How many trips can we make to the ped for 'it's nothing, just a little cold'?" :hug:

question for yalls...

How close to the due date should I be prepared to block my schedule out for any work trips or functions? Is it one of those things when it's like, a few weeks out you should be within 10-15 minutes of mom just incase anything happens?

i pretty much cleared the whole third trimester but i'm hyper careful

a month is probably more reasonable, but definitely something that depends on you and your partners comfort

Our kid came two weeks early

I think a month before the due date is prudent barring a preemie situation

my kid has been having one of "those" days where she manages to spill/drop anything and everything i've handed her

she even managed to spill an entire cup of kung fu tea lemonade with the plastic lid seal thingy still on it :o

I traveled a month before and I was nervous as fuck.

My wife has a great support system nearby however.
